We have used the information supplied by PASC (www.pasc.co.uk) as the basis for our Risk Assessments and Cleaning Protocols and receive regular updates from them regarding Government guidelines. We have purchased a fogging machine which will be used with Sodium Hydrochloride prior to cleaning (to protect the owner) and after cleaning to leave the property ready for guests. The owner is the only member of "staff" to clean the property, limiting risk by reducing individuals entering. Bookings will be taken with consideration to enable thorough cleaning and disinfecting of the barn.
FROM THE ESTABLISHMENT
This recently renovated two bedroom barn sits behind Old Sulehay Cottages and was originally built to provide a laundry and store rooms for the farm cottages built in 1873 by the nearby Westmoreland Estate. The barn has been thoughtfully restored and extended to provide a modern, self contained cottage sleeping four people. Imaginatively designed and finished to a very high standard, the barn offers luxury and comfort in abundance. The Little Bothy has it's own courtyard with garden furniture. Perfect for a romantic getaway - quiet, peaceful and relaxing for just the two of you.

About the area
Northamptonshire is a mainly rural county of gentle beauty, with farmland, forest and great country estates. Rivers, canals and meadows are all part of the tranquil scene, providing a haven for wildlife.
This is a great area for walking, touring and exploring villages of stone and thatch. There are also some impressive Saxon churches at Brixworth and Earls Barton. Northampton is the county town, and along with Kettering, has long been associated with the production of footwear. Kettering was the second largest town until it was overtaken by the rapid development of Corby as a major centre of the steel industry.
Jane Austen’s Mansfield Park is set in Northamptonshire, although it seems that Austen never actually visited the county. Other famous connections include the poet John Dryden (1631-1700) who was born in the tiny village of Aldwincle; King Richard III (1452-1485) born at Fotheringhay Castle; and American revolutionaries George Washington (1732-1799), whose family came from Sulgrave Manor, and Benjamin Franklin (1706-1790) whose father was born in another tiny Northamptonshire village called Ecton.
